The main reason you should call an IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) company when dealing with mitigation and restoration is because the unseen, such as smoke, soot and water, can cause extensive damage to your property. Even the smallest amount of unseen water or residue from a fire has the potential to cause serious indoor air quality and structural damage to your property over time.
The key to preventing costly restoration expenses is to reach out to a team of professionals immediately. An IICRC company is trained to use the proper equipment and technologies, which can make a big difference in reducing damages and expenses associated with fire and water damage loss.
The Jones Companies is an IICRC company, and they have the training, technology and equipment needed to help mitigate loss from fire, storm or water damage.
We use moisture sensors to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls. Moisture meters are used to determine the moisture content in those materials and to also accurately monitor the drying process. Our thermo hygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. This helps calculate and create an environment that is most beneficial for drying.
Once moisture is removed, the ultra-low-volume (ULV) foggers can be used to dispense liquid deodorizing agents. This produces a very fine mist that can easily penetrates where odor-causing residues have accumulated. They can also be used to inject disinfectants and fungicides into walls and other hard-to-reach areas. Finally, thermal foggers, which dispense solvent-based products, create a dense fog of particles which can attach and neutralize odor causing particles.
One thing that you should remember when handling a contaminated loss, is that it’s important to not only dry a structure, but to disinfect and deodorize it which is something an IICRC Company is trained to handle. So, remember this, if you have damage don’t be afraid to call a certified, professional team like The Jones Companies in Jacksonville/Onslow County. We can help restore your property so you can move on with life.
